Yes, it is that time of year once again when we all begin to envision our Thanksgiving tables.  The turkey dishes will need to be run through the dishwasher; the Gorham silver will need to be dipped and polished; the crystal serving dishes need to be sparkling clean.  I will press all of the real cloth napkins, those embossed with a...

Although some people are cat people, some are dog people, and some are even snake people, I prefer dogs.   There is someone in my family who is definitely a dog person, and her family readily agrees on this matter of preference.  They have five dogs that co-exist with their family of four people. The dogs range in size from three...

A few of us were talking about the job market the other day. It seems like even with so many people out of work, I see want ads in several places, even here in our town.   I have heard some say, “I’m too educated to work here or there.” Minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. If you were making nothing per hour, that would be $7...

I have all of my life been somewhat of an activist.  I have always jumped on the bandwagon if an idea needs to go to fruition with banner success.  I have served on many committees in our hometown that have been triumphant.   I have this innate characteristic to never be able to say “NO” to anything asked of me....

I have told you about the old Strain House that my grandfather, on my Price side, lived in when I was young.  It was an old civil war home and in the day time, quite neglected, but in the dark of night it was completely frightening (this was a pre-Civil War homestead). At my young age, it looked many years older than the hundred or so...

I realize that life is full of changes.     As I watched the transformation of the old A & A Grocery store building as it was uncovered from the many facades it has held throughout the years, I was reminded of the Saturday afternoons my friends and I would saunter around the court square.  I am not sure what our exact...

My friend and I were visiting and began to talk about the things we really enjoyed in our lives.  I love first born puppies.   I was babysitting my daughter’s Boston Bulldog, Rosalind Lee, Rosie for short, just before she gave birth to her first litter of puppies. They were a cross-breed of dachshund and bulldog.  As I...

Cotton bolls in all of their glory, coloring the landscape of the work-tended land have now opened to magnificent splendor!   Is there anything more beautiful or peaceful to gaze upon than a matured cotton field?  I surely do not think so.   My husband and I were traveling the roads again yesterday, and we passed several...
